I usually go down around 6am and stretch my snorkel mask around one of the seats to save my spot till after breakfast.

That's why I like Royal Hideaway Playacar so much-- no swim-up bar and no pool games. [shudder]

crave thats awesome! LOL

this past trip was the first time i had spent any time at the pool bar because i couldnt walk on the beach or sit in a lounger. met some nice people there. staff were awesome.

id go try and do a walking lap in the pool, but that was only in the morning. wouldnt really wanna get in the pool by mid afternoon. definitely not in the late afternoon!

Be careful of the one eyed eels by the pool bar.

There are more important things to worry about than who's playing the towel game...

Swim up bar: Usually at larger resorts, a bar placed in the middle of the pool requiring patrons to swim to access it, often having bar stools submerged in water. Thank God the 'stools' arent what we have to worry about!
